    Yup, tried to remember something but I can't find a more perfectly realised OST in the last couple of years, though I do have some old favourites.

    Gran Turismo and Gran Turismo 2 have tremendous soundtracks.

    WipeOut 2097 was great also.

    GTA was great for the time with all the different radio stations etc.

    Sonic, Mario etc tunes still sound great - somehow aren't annoying there decades later!

    This is probably one of those where questions where nostalgia plays a large part.

    R-Type on the Atari ST for me in nostalgia terms

    - Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
    - Dave Mirror BMX
    - Gran Turismo 2
    - GTA Vice City
    - Burnout 3 Takedown
    - SSX 3

    The u.n squadron soundtrack on the SNES will always be nostalgic for me. Same as megaman 2. Grew up with both of those :D

    Hollow Knight has some beautiful music. I hate piano music but this stuff is the exception.

    This has to be the entire Witcher 3! Any part of it, any piece of music is simply spectacular..

    Kinda common but for me its the FFVII overworld theme and city of ancients. I generally think video game music goes underappreciated outside of gaming which is a shame really. TBH I think FFVII has one of the greatest musical compositions ever but thats just me.

    From 3.40 really gets me quite emotional, it's like all those feelings from playing come back to you at once and tbh that makes me sad in a way.

    Just find this piece very haunting especially what it was tied to in game.

    Oh and something different, just very catchy:

    Ice Station Zeto music from Unreal Tournament always sends chills down my spine:

    Thomas Was Alone has an excellent soundtrack (and really made the game what it was). Gris is also excellent.
    Love a few of the tracks from Undertale.
